Orange Canvas crashes on XP

Postby obmana » Thu Oct 04, 2012 2:53


I wanted to try your package, and I first download distribution kindly provided by Christoph Gohlke, as I usually do. However starting Orange Canvas, resulted in a crash

I then removed Orange, and installed distribution hosted officially on But if crashes on exact same spot, while trying to initialize Discretize module. Here is debug screenshot:


It seems like some kind of a problem with PyQwt or PyQt

I run Python 2.7.2 on Windows XP SP3 32bit, up to date. Additionally:

PyQt 4.9.1
PyQwt 5.2.0

Any ideas?

I can't duplicate the problem.

How and from where did you install PyQt4 and PyQwt?

Can you open "\Python27\Lib\site-packages\Orange\OrangeWidgets\Data\" file
and put a
Code: Select all
raise ImportError
at the beginning (or just remove the file). Then run Orange again.
Does the crash still happen (at some other point)?
